mixed with nails and debris. and now people are focused on rebuilding. cnn's jim clancy is in belmar, new jersey, an area that was flooded a few days ago. jim, good morning. are you noticing any progress? i mean is the power back on there? >> reporter: you know, belmar -- come on, randi. this is a place that you know very, very well, up close and personal. and as you can see, the trucks are here, there's the mounds of sand. this, of course, for our viewers, there used to be more than a mile of beautiful boardwalk here. this is really one of the jewels of the entire jersey shore. it was ripped out by the force of hurricane sandy and now because it's a bowl here they're having to pump water from inland lakes to get it back into the sea, drain it, allow the residents to come back to their homes. they still don't have power yet, ran randi. they don't think they'll have it until next friday. people are really cold out there. they're shivering a little bit. but at the same time, they're thankful for what they have. they're having a mass today to honor the first responders who risked so muc

in the u.s. cnn jim clancy is in long island beach, new jersey, an area where houses were floating down the streets. jim, we hear some good news of some signs of improvement this morning. >> well, you know, the improvement is going to come and certainly they're out there working every day. they're digging away. they're trying to literally like snow plows tear through the sand dunes that have built up. some as high as six feet on this island, covering up roadways and plowing through all of that and they're working on, i've seen people coming out and checking the power lines and we have people coming out and the entire underside of some of these homes that were up on stilts or posts or whatever you want to call it, pili pylons. they may have to come down. all of the homes, they're ensuring that they have a little bit of stability. you know, this was quite a storm. i talked to one of the residents, he refuses to leave. search and rescue yesterday, guy name carl was telling me that the experience of this storm was the experience of a lifetime. listen. >> it was a surreal experience and prob
, but i think it's a fair question that i want to ask you. i was speaking to our very own jim clancy yesterday, who has covered this region since the 1980s. i'm not sure if you're aware of the conversation, but he said, essentially, that the strategy that israel is using at this point is antiquated, and it just keeps the region spiraling out of control. and that something must be done. some sort of negotiation. what do you make of that? >> well, we're dealing with hamas here. hamas is an organization whose covenant calls for the destruction of the state of israel. it actually calls for the destruction of the jewish people anywhere in the world, including the united states of america. it's a genocidal organization. it doesn't request our legitimacy, our right to exist, and it's not looking to negotiate with us. so i would ask tom respectively, imagine that he is the prime minister of israel, he wakes up tomorrow morning, and he's got what we've had in the last few months, 8,000 rockets falling on half the population of the country. what else can we do, other than to take all legitimat
